7 Feminist Conversations We Should Have To Wrap Up The Summer

September 2, 2014


1. We have a police brutality issue in our country. Black men and boys are targets. Black parents are already having, and have had, that “talk” with their kids about how to avoid getting shot by police. How do we deal with this? How does this cycle end? 2.

They ask the question–Is this feminist?– and then dissect why the […]

Rachel Maddow Is Going To Tell You Like It Is: Women Make Less $$

April 30, 2012


I’m not sure which part of the interview on yesterday’s Meet The Press is more insulting. When republican strategist Alex Castellanos tells Rachel Maddow that he really “loves how passionate” she is on the topic of women’s pay disparity or when he consistently interrupts her by insisting that women don’t make as much as men […]
